My POV AWOL
spotted over at Spud Goodman .com
"GAS IF I OWNED A CAR THEN I WOULD BE PRETTY HAPPY RIGHT NOW. NOT ABOUT THE CAR CUZ IT WOULD PROBABLY BE A PIECE OF CRAP BUT AT LEAST I WOULDN T HAVE TO SELL MY BLOOD TO BUY A QUARTER TANK OF GAS ANYMORE. FOR A WHILE IT WAS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN WEED (OR AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD) SO NOW THAT PEOPLE WILL HAVE MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS THEY CAN MAYBE BUY FOOD. I GUESS IT'S BAD FOR THOSE PEOPLE IN THAT SANDY PART OF THE WORLD WHO SELL OIL SO IT'S NOT ALL GOOD FOR EVERYONE. IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S ALWAYS THAT WAY WITH THIS FREE MARKET THING, SOMEONE WINS AND SOMEONE LOSES BUT IF THE WORLD DOSEN'T EXPLODE AND EVERYONE LOSE THEIR JOBS THEN 2009 HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER YEAR THAN 2008. THAT'S MY CALL AND I'M STICKING TO IT. LATER"

|That's a compelling question Mr. Anderson.
This thingy: ’
appears to be the new apostrophe in blog post titles. But then I noticed that Mr. Freitas has a perfectly formed apostrophe in his latest blog entry title. Does he hold the key to normal looking apostrophes?

|perhaps its utf-8 apostrophes vs. Microsoft ISO apostrophes.... the old copy/paste from microsoft word demon that haunts blog editors .|

|When I was a kid I thought it was Jesus and the 12 apostrophes. Maybe we should consult Mofo from the Hood on matters ecclesiastical.|

|Good one C.S., and did you hear about the kid who thought the Epistles were the wives of the Apostles?
Now for something completely different; here's my Spud Goodman story of sorts. A long time ago Spud Goodman had a t.v. show which about the only thing that I remember about it was that it was anti-drugs, specifically anti-acid.
Anyway, around that time, the mid 80's, I was renting rooms in my house to female U.P.S. students. So one day one of them has a woman friend come over for dinner. I'm invited to stay and so as the evening progresses with lively conversation, the guest reveals that she is a bellydancer and also has the time-honored skill of Tarot card reading. So I say that I've never had that experience and then that in turn leads to an invitation to the women's apartment for a reading. So later that week I drive over to the women's apartment which was across the street from Frisko Freeze. Now this was all in fun and with the intent of finding out what's so great about the occult. So I'm invited into the living room and there's the Tarot cards on the table, and also her ten-year old son is boppin' around the house, so like I said this was all cordial and legit. So she deals and reads the Tarot cards and I get some kind of wild card that dooms me to a chance meeting with a vivacious brunette who will cast her spell on me and my wallet or something. But anyway, beyond all that, me and the bellydancer/tarot card reader once again had a great evening socializing. One of the amusing highlights of this woman, Michelle B., who is now living in a different dimension; one of her many talents was that she was the producer of The Spud Goodman Show.

|I wonder if it just doesn't like Wordpress apostrophes? I know I haven't seen a normal one in my titles since I switched, and I don't copy/paste from Word.

|what do we have to do around here to get a decent pubic access channel?
People who think we can beat Seattle without one better wake up real fast and join the real world.. fast.

|also if you can stomach the behind-the-browser popups you should read about the latest imprisonment of The TRAVELLER over at teh tribnet|
how many times do you have to be arrested to be considered a political prisoner? Perhaps he should seek asylum in Ruston

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
